me too! i split the big bottle of St. Andrews Ale i bought last night w/ my wife, and she loved it. so, my next batch may be a clone. i just happen to have a back issue of Zymurgy that has 2 Belhaven clones in it, but don't think they are the Wee Heavy. they don't even have the Wee Heavy listed on their web site? under exports or Best beers.....i'll dig around though!

If you like Scottish Ales it might be worth seeing if you can find any Caledonian beers (http://www.caledonian-brewery.co.uk). It used to be an independent but has recently been taken over by Scottish and Newcastle.

My favourite Cale beers are the Deuchars IPA and their 80 shilling - both fantastic on draft and only slightly poorer in the bottle


Slainte !

80/-

I used to drink those in The Ship Inn, Limekilns just along the road from Rosyth.

Hey 80/-, excuse me for being dense (or maybe just uninitiated), but how do you pronounce your user name? Is "/-" the symbol for shillings?

I'm sure 80/- won't mind me answering for him. Yes 80/- is 80 Shilling or also known as 80 Bob.
Something to do with the tax paid on a barrel of beer. The stronger the beer the more tax was paid. 80 being an above average strength beer.
Am I right Eighty?

80/- Limekilns is a small village overlooking the Forth off the main road between Rosyth and kincadine. Highly recommended if your ever in the area.

Roger.

Absolutely spot on !

Beer used to be taxed depending on it's alcoholic strength - a set number of shillings per barrel. In Scotland the beer types are oftern still referred to by the old tax bandings.

I've sampled 60/- (quite a light ale), 70/-, 80/- and 90/-.

My favourites are 70/- or 80/- depending on the brewery, but a nice bottle of 90/- is good on a cold winters night.


80/-

man, you guy's are killing me w/ the Scottish brew talk!!!! i have to brew an ESB tomorrow, and would rather a 80/-.

i'll probably have to look for a Caledonian the next time i'm in Houston, TX. best i can get local is the Belhaven, which is mighty fine with me! thanks for the tip!

i'm really starting to dig you English/Scottish guy's! (any word on the bastard they took out in London today? hope it saved some grief and lives..........)

Thanks guys...you'd think I'd have learned a bit of that stuff, having been born there, but that was a long time ago
